Blog Hopping

I have found myself with a lot of time on my hands this weekend. My dear husband has been working hard to get the power back on for thousands around the county due to the snowstorm this weekend. I really miss him and want him home. But, there is a lot more people out there that need him more than I do right now. So, I have decided to do a little blog hopping.

Last night I spent some time digging in some blogs I already follow. So, if you track your hits and some old posts are getting hit…it’s me!

For some reason, I lost my blog feed (or whatever it’s called) for The Suburban Jungle for the past couple of months. I’ve been spending a little time over there for she has a wealth of information. Angela can seriously by $100 worth of groceries for like two bucks! Wow. She has info on eating healthy, saving money, fitness, and the list goes on. Stop by and browse around. You won’t be disappointed.

For my more serious side, I’ve been hanging out at Tony C Today and Fire and Grace. I don’t necessarily have the same views as these guys; but, I like the way David is so blunt and to the point. And since I knew the C-Man back in the day, his humor cracks me up. I think it’s because I can totally envision his mannerisms and facial expressions when he’s telling a story. We were great friends back in the day and I am so happy that we’ve reconnected through the blogosphere and Facebook.

A couple new blogs I’ve been following lately are Raising Olives and Raising Arrows. They, too, have a lot of great information, especially if you are interested in homeschooling. Their stories are wonderful stories of faith in God. I’ve spent a bit of time at Raising Arrows and have truly been moved by their strength. She has left me in tears over and over. What amazing honesty and faith!

I’ve decided to spend tonight blog hopping. And this is what I’ve found…

I decided to join the Christian Group on Mom Bloggers Club. I just glanced around for something interesting and found a discussion on “Authentic Christianity ‘where is it?’” Well, right up my alley. I follow to the person that started and was so convicted by this post HERE! So, go over and visit Suzanne and Christina, you’ll be blessed.

I also found and enjoyed:

A Dancing Barefoot Christmas

Journey of Grace

Mom’s the Word

And now I’m sleepy and out of Sweet Sixteen donuts.

I went through A LOT OF BLOGS!!! More than those few I just mentioned… I just picked out the one’s that really caught my eye.

Good. Night.

Hey! We're still great friends! Stop with the past tense and 'back in the day' stuff.

I'm very entertained by the dialog between you and David, but it's also very thought provoking. That's good for everyone all around. You both have a passion for God, and I know others see that.

BTW- Carlee loved The Princess and the Frog. Very cute movie (I might have shed a tear, but don't tell anyone).

Michelle, thank you for your kind comments and you should know I've been a follower of MckMama for 2 years now! Surprised we didn't "meet" sooner! I, like you, am just a mom with a lot of faith, but trying to live in THIS world. And at times, that's not easy! I hope that we can all find encouragement in the blogosphere! :)
